Hello! There is another poster in the St. Thomas message board, that is also a distant relative of Baa.P.Samuels.You may want to read her posts and email her as well.She has alot of information, as i have spoken to her. She is very nice. Information on the Dutch Reformed Church can be found in the Archives in St. Thomas, i believe.The Baa family were
Catholic as well, i would check those records. If you find any info through those chanels, please tell me. I am very excited, as i am trying to connect the Baa family with the Queeman/Cruse family.I was told a long time ago that Andreas was a Cheiftan. I don't know if it is true or not, you know how family lore is.He was described as being very regal,very dark and dignified looking.It is very difficult, because alot of the early family are Mulattoes.Alot of distant relatives of Ba or Baa run into a brick wall.The racial line is not consistant.Andreas was released from slavery sometime between 1770- 1783. He quickly moved to St. Croix.I don't know the connection between Baa And Rogiers, but the name Rogiers is French for Rogers, i think. (French Mullato?) Check The Archives in St. Thomas. Enid did an extensive history of European
families and settlers on the islands. You may find the answers there. Remember, the big throw off is that the Baa Family as well as many families in the Caribbean (my own included) intermarried and intermixed all the time and deviated their surnames.Take care and good luck! J. Tracy.
